Unity Game Development at Gallaudet University

Recently, I had the opportunity to teach game development at Gallaudet University with Unity 5 and C# as the programming language. From their website, “Gallaudet University is the world leader in liberal education and career development for deaf and hard of hearing students“.


We started with a small classroom of about 10 people, including teachers and students. The faculty members graciously arranged 2 interpreters for the class, who did a great job in using ASL while I spoke.

We followed my Rollerball tutorial, which is a step-by-step version of Unity’s own Roll-a-ball video tutorial. You may view/download the material below.

As we wrapped up, I demonstrated how you can use Kinect to detect human bodies and provide new ways of interacting by NUI (Natural User Interface). I demonstrated a Unity sample using Kinect v2 and also used my Speech Bubbles for Kinect app within Visual Studio to take some pictures with some volunteers.
